Illinois State Senate District 27 issued the following announcement on Aug. 22.

Students will be able to more easily find local job opportunities with a work-based learning database that was created under a new law sponsored by State Senator Ann Gillespie (D-Arlington Heights).

House Bill 2868 requires the Illinois State Board of Education to develop and maintain a work-based learning database to help facilitate relationships between schools and local businesses.

“Making these jobs easily accessible to young people will allow them to earn money and gain valuable industry skills,” said Gillespie. “Schools and employers will also develop working relationships that will be mutually beneficial, creating a school-to-work pipeline.”

House Bill 2868 is effective immediately.
